Setup & Installation / Re: Trap 0008 installing ArcaOS 504
« on: January 05, 2020, 10:51:41 pm »
Have not tried the manage system option since I already did a new install "Modern hardware, no ACPI" and that works fine.
Did attach a log to the ticket I placed at AN and hopefully that will help in enabling ACPI on this system.

Thanks, Dave, lots of interesting info there. Still I've not been able to boot the system, so no testlog yet.
Tried limiting CPU count to 1 but that did not make a difference.
Anyone familiar with the BIOS on newer Lenovo systems and knows if there is some settings, in addition to "compatible" and disabling hyperthreading, that should be changed?

Irrelevant, but yes, I've been using OS/2 long enough to know some of the "standard secrets".

Hyperthreading is off, and ALT F4 immediately results in:
---
The system detected an internal processing error at
location ##0158:a278 - 000e:a278.
60004, 6009
---

The BIOS is set to "compatible", however there could of course be something I've overlooked.

Tried to install again in order to get the "install_abend.zip" just to see if that file could give an idea of what's going wrong.
Don't know why but this time the installation finished phase 1 and 2 and I got the trap 0008 on the third reboot. No "install_abend.zip" was produced so I've opened a ticket at Arca which includes the "install_yyyymmdd.zip".

Setup & Installation / Trap 0008 installing ArcaOS 504

Hi,

Before opening a ticket I'd like to know if anyone knows what could cause trap 0008. First phase installs ok on this
ThinkStation 520, after the reboot some drivers are being loaded and all of sudden it stops and produces the attached trap screen.

According to https://www.arcanoae.com/roadmaps/drivers/ a NVMe driver is "planned".
However, I suspect it will take a long time before that driver will be available so if anyone is up to the task !'d be happy to support a bounty.

Thank you, Roberto.
A different approach which I'll look into for some other DBE stuff as well.

Yes, the file can be parsed afterwards and pdftotxt.exe could be used. I do have another program using this approach for some other pdf files.

However, still I'd like to find out how to "automate" this task with DBE/PMPDF since it works fine with another program.

If the name is not given when the report is printed to PMPDF it will always be yyyymmddhhmmss-InvoiceReport.pdf and this file name would have to renamed to 12345.pdf. Remember I use PMPDF's options set to "automatically create pdf" so in this case there is no way to see from the file name that it actually is invoice no. 12345.
Using PMPDF to automatically create pdf's from another application I have results in files named with this format;
yyyymmddhhmmss-Invoice_12345_Account_67890.pdf, so in this case renaming is an easy task.
However, I don't have the sources so I cannot see how it is taking the invoice number and account number from the record and uses them as parts of the file name.

Programming / DBE/PmPDF report titles
« on: September 20, 2019, 04:31:35 pm »
When printing a report in DBExpert to PMPDF, and PMPDF is set to create pdf's automatically, it creates a file like this;
20190920160910-InvoiceReport.PDF where InvoiceReport is the title of the report in DBE.

If the invoice number in this case is 12345, is there a method to automatically create a pdf named only 12345.pdf?
(Actually substitute the report title "InvoiceReport" with the invoice number from it's field in the report.)

Just to avoid confusion, like Dave Yeo mentioned, there are;

and

https://www.falkon.org/

Believe Falkon (with 'k') is the one likely to be ported.

Thanks for the link. The models I've looked at have two USB 2.0 ports and up to 8 USB 3.0 ports.
Good to know about the Startek USB 2.0 PCIe, so with that I can even look at systems that only have USB 3.0.

Yes, I noticed that thread but was hoping that someone had done some tests recently  ::)
Driver for NVMe is on the Arca Noae "to do" list, however I can't wait for that one to be released.
Probably I'll just buy one model that also supports my old SATA SSD's. If Win10 comes preloaded on a NVMe
and Airboot can't boot it I will just transfer the Win10 installation to another SATA SSD.

On what kind of disk was Win7 installed?
